INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Some special visitors stopped by to help lift the spirits of patients at Riley Hospital for Children.

As part of the Pacers Cares program, team members and Pacemates spent part of the day signing autographs, playing games and bringing some joy to children at Riley.

Among team members who were there at the Child Life Zone were Glen Robinson III, Myles Turner, Chase Budinger and Dan Burke.

“We’re here today just doing all we can for the community to have,” Robinson said. “You know, we have a unique ability through the game of basketball to help out the community. So anytime we can give back we love to.”

The children also had a chance to enjoy a pizza party with the players and cheerleaders.
